Why: It is the intention of the Tri-County Farmers Market to create a successful and sustainable producer-only farmers market that meets the needs of both our agricultural community as well as the community at-large. Our mission is to provide a visible and convenient location providing access to fresh, nutritious food directly from farmers to consumers. We recognize the importance that direct marketing of local food has to offer our community, our economy, our farmers and our environment and we strive to create a venue that allows this agricultural tradition to continue and flourish. That is why we value your perspective on how to accomplish this goal and why we look forward to seeing you on the 11th!
Who: We welcome all existing and prospective farmers and vendors, as well as community supporters.
